Render me Helpless

Neil Young is making a legitimate effort to honor the treaties. In doing so, he's raising awareness of our world's CO2 levels, as if being a once in a lifetime singer/songwriter wasn't enough. He recently wrapped up a stand at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Many of the set lists have had a familiar look. On one special night in Manhattan he dug into his lyrical cannon with a beautifully stripped-down version of "Helpless." This otherworldly track was originally recorded by Crazy Horse and appeared on the CSNY album, Deja Vu. For those of us who hanker to see one of his solo acoustic shows, we had better get north of the border. His tour has left New York for the confines of Canada's Provinces. Neil will be making stops at the legendary Massey Hall in Toronto before embarking onward to Winnipeg, Regina and Calgary. Other highlights from this particular concert were "Birds" and "Journey into the Past," which he performed on piano. For the setlist click here.
